That weekly Instagram collection again…

0 Comments

Reading Time: 3 minutesA briefer collection of Instagram images than usual this week. After a stumbling start, where I actually didn’t post anything for a couple of days at all, I got back in to my stride towards the end of the week.

3 Comments

Reading Time: 9 minutesI make no secret of enjoying and appreciating a good backpack. In fact, I often scout around the Interweb looking at backpacks, collating the finest into another post in a series of “Backpacks for the style conscious man”. A backpack is a great way of bringing stuff with you, without the hassle of having to use one or two arms…
